South Carolina Education Committee Removes Evolution From Standards

lesincompetent Re:SubjectsInCommentsAreStupid (665 comments)

You are the second person to totally and probably consciously miss my point in order to defend your faith. Reflect on why you felt the urge to do that. I hold you in contempt.

Why Does Facebook Need To Read My Text Messages?

lesincompetent SubjectsInCommentsAreStupid (293 comments)

Uninstalled the app, started using FB via browser. For my low intensity usage it's still perfect. Also links to click and youtube embeds work seamlessly now.
Got no messenger installed too.

Doctors Say Food Stamp Cuts Could Cause Higher Healthcare Costs

lesincompetent SubjectsInCommentsAreStupid (1043 comments)

I think food stamps cutting is just what the USA needs to light the tinderbox once and for all. You never know what will trigger the next uprising until it goes off. Any event - however small - can do.

Has the local browser cache become useless?

lesincompetent lesincompetent writes  |  about a year ago

lesincompetent (2836253) writes "Think about it. In this age of high end hardware and relatively high bandwidth, storing things on a device many orders of magnitude slower than any other is something we should get rid of. Even for static content: is it really worth the disk I\O effort? How much page loading time am i saving? Not to mention the fact that browser caches are among the first causes of system littering. It's been many years now since the last time i had a browser with disk caching enabled on any of my systems (besides chrome, unfortunately, because you can't deactivate it.)"
